PCMLE: Enver Hoxha’s speech at the International Conference of 81 Communist and Workers parties

From En Marcha, the newspaper of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador (PCMLE).

The Twentieth Congress of the CPSU betrayal of Marxism-Leninism and socialism” gone public a brief summary of the speech by Enver Hoxha on behalf of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Albania at the Conference of 81 Communist and Workers Parties held in Moscow in November and December 1960.

Enver Hoxha’s speech at the conference of 81 communist and workers parties held in Moscow del10 November to 1 December 1960 was intended revisionist theses rrechazar XX Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the anti Marxist group Krushchev and fly the Marxism-Leninism.

This lecture was given under conditions that are expanding and consolidating the socialist camp headed by the USSR while the imperialist weakened and with which there should be no concession, but the guarantee of victory was the unity of the socialist eliminating the profound differences emerged and based on the fundamentals of Marxism-Leninism.

The initiative was taken away imperialism through a long period of bloody revolutions and struggles of people who rose up to destroy the world of hunger and misery, as the Great Socialist Revolution of October ¬ tion.

Enver Hoxha points out that U.S. imperialism has not changed in nature and therefore should not be making any concessions, that peaceful coexistence established by Lenin for the first time between states with different social systems, does not mean giving up the struggle classes, which must develop, grow and strengthen leadership of the proletariat of each country with its communist party in the lead.

The Soviet leaders, Enver Hoxha, said Comrade Stalin accused of intervening in the affairs of other parties and others imposing views of the Bolshevik Party, which was not because more Comrade Stalin was conducted as a great Marxist, internationalist issue, because in 1945, when the Albanian people was in danger of going hungry, he ordered the shift towards Albania ship laden with grain for the Soviet people.

Enver Hoxha states that the pro ¬ draft conference declaration shows that revisionism is the main danger in the international communist and workers movement whose internal source is the existence of bourgeois influence and surrender to imperialism, the external source. Revisionism has declared Marxism-Leninism ¬, aged and no revolutionary spirit and the rule ¬ ism as tame and peaceful.

He points out that Stalin was accused by his cult of personality in Khrushchev’s secret report, not in a correct and objective

It should raise questions bluntly, as they are, that has to do now in this Conference, before it’s too late and say frankly what I think, because we have not been nor will we be hypocrites.

The Labour Party of Albania, Enver Hoxha, who says this because it will make history conference following the Leninist tradition of the party conferences Bol ¬ chevique organized to expose and remove the erroneous views on the basis of Marxism- Leninism and the unity of the mo ¬ international communist and workers movement.

PCMLV: Che – Marxist-Leninist

A year ago we published the article with the name “News of Che and the struggle against opportunism” in our newspaper Revolutionary Steel. Today, we celebrate 4 years of the existence of our glorious party under the motto Marxist-Leninist Che! We feel the need to rewrite, adding some elements that because of time we were forced to ignore or at least playing in lines then general without going into them.

Now, it is necessary to delve into what we consider three cardinal aspects of the attitude of M-L Ernesto Guevara. Their struggle for Marxist-Leninist party building at that time entitled “The anarchists” struggle against revisionism that we called “the Trotskyists” and now added a new chapter called “The Marxist-Leninist philosophy of Che” these being special interest since the various currents neo-rrevolucionarias, neo-Marxist and all sorts of postmodern trash (and old revisions with new hair) lack of historical subject and trying to claim a scientific tool and patented the figure of the Argentine revolutionary.

Che Guevara, is a world figure who was traded by the bourgeoisie to turn it into a harmless icon. Thus, all the streams mentioned in the article, trying to castrate the content of discourse and Che’s Marxist-Leninist revolutionary practice. In this sense, not missing those who distort and decontextualized some phrases, speeches and writings of Che for their benefits revisionists. The literature and practical revolutionary legacy of Che, when we approach from the scientific perspective with a serious study leaves no doubt of his position consistent with the principles of proletarian ideology, which is none other than the Marismo Leninism.

44 years ago, died on guerrilla Ernesto Guevara de la Serna known as “El Che.” Since imperialism through their lackeys in Bolivia, cowardly murdered this great fighter, many misrepresentations have been made about its revolutionary quality. From the anarchists, petty bourgeois, even the Trotskyists have tried to capture the image of Che for opportunistic benefits, so much so that ideologists of Trotskyism integers have written essays on a thick volume called “current of thought and vision of Trotsky Che and Latin America “, in turn alienate the anarchist communism che and try to say it was a fighter for the abolition of any discipline and the spontaneous struggle of the masses.

This October, while commemorating the anniversary of Che’s death, we denounce all revisionist groups, and claim the real Argentine revolutionary ideology of Marxism-Leninism as a genuine. Just read the work of Che to observe its high fidelity to Leninism and Marxism, communist oriented itself exposes all the revisionist nonsense they preach.

Other types of cutting equipment or Armando Néstor Kohan Haart, trying to seize, in patented for himself to this great revolutionary, so does the “arch-Trotskyite” Alan Woods, who (not having anything else to do) is dedicated to write long texts on Che (In line with Trotsky of course), the style of Thomas Aquinas with Aristotle, with its 5-way to nothing included or what is the same as their “permanent revolution.”

To address the design of Che party, we must study about key works, such as speech called “party building”, where he played key issues jettisoned any attempt, not only of the anarchists, but all kinds of revisionists who deny the Marxist-Leninist character must be a revolutionary party if you really want to build socialism. For this reason, in this section called “The anarchists’, we decided to replace the name” The conception of Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Che, “that we do because we believe that” The anarchists “limits the depth of the subject study and gives a unilateral, that although at that time was necessary for reasons of space, now we have to address, giving a more general, making clear the positions of the Che Marxist Leninist unquestionable.

The same it is necessary to this article is a section devoted to the philosophy of Ernesto Che Guevara. Today fashion has entered the bourgeois philosophical theories of existentialism. Certain currents of socialism in the XXI century are demanding reactionary thinkers like Nietzsche and Heidegger and his so-called “philosophy of life.” The reasons for this mutation was found in the fear of death that pervaded the Venezuelan leader Chavez after an illness.

The philosophy of existentialism is made to attack the man of the bourgeois era with this pessimism and fear of the unknown.

It is here where the reactionaries who run the party and the Venezuelan government have encouraged their “ideologues” or rather, all his sycophants to a gross mismatch between the new man and Che Marxist-Leninist, with the “superman”, individualistic , bourgeois and timid of Nietzsche.

The conception of the Marxist Leninist Communist Party of Che

Now, when large shaking movements throughout Latin America and the world at large, we see how the masses rise up against the neoliberal measures that are trying to carry on the workers the consequences of the crisis of capitalism.

In that scenario, tens of conceptions abound all struggling against capitalism, without horizon clear, historical subject and no scientific theory. Many of them are stuck in struggles merely vindictive, leaving aside the political struggle of the proletariat and the seizure of power, the only solution to eliminate the ravages of capitalism in the villages.

One of those many “new” ideas is called “socialism of the XXI century” which has its highest expression in our country. This so-called Bolivarian revolution is just a bourgeois democratic model center has chosen to various social programs that benefit the masses, has been charged with forming a scaffolding wrapped around a socialist but that denies the most fundamental elements of it.

We will not expose all the features of this model, we confine ourselves to what concerns us, which is the conception of the party. We stop a little in Venezuela and its very nice revolution, because it is awarded as his figure of Che, but in practice is diametrically the opposite.

The United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), between the figures of Simon Bolivar and Che Guevara Rodriguez lies, ignorance or manipulation ¿? This game is first multiclass scaffolding where there is no clear revolutionary subject and program progress to socialism is even fuzzier. Although there is a departure from the word bourgeois writer Heinz Dieterich, its politics, especially the economic one remains the same as the “intellectual” plasma in his book dedicated to socialism sigloventiunero.

The party of Che Guevara, in his conception is deeply communist and Marxist-Leninist. We will not focus solely on the program or the principles of the PSUV, because we all know and it is not the only party of petty nature in Latin America will try to give an outline broadly opposing party’s conception of Che to the reformist ideas of these parties and organizations (although it sounds paradoxical) anarchists.

Marxist Leninist conduct Guevara, faithfully expresses his theories on how it should be the true party of the revolution. In his speech “party building” tells us: “In the general scheme of design of the Party, puts it firmly at the head of the proletarian state, and guide their actions, by example, with its sacrifices, with the depth of his thought and the boldness of his deeds, each moment of our revolution. “later says:” The militant party of revolution is a Marxist Marxism must know and must consistently apply in its analysis dialectical materialism to interpret the world fully, “” We (told later), we hope that all our people go to a single rate, with a single step, that their vanguard have to fight and walk very fast with many difficulties to overcome our shortcomings. That is our task. ”

These passages cited from Che, pulverize any attempt to find a basis of unsubstantiated theories of spontaneity and discipline does not comply with the anarchists seek to manipulate the figure of Che.

As for the petty-bourgeois parties, would only take a look at Che’s speech quoted above about the match. Che says, “And in this new era we live in the stage of building socialism, where all forms of discrimination and sweep is just as unique and determining the dictatorship, the dictatorship of the working class as a class organized on the other classes which have been defeated, and the preparation of a long road that will be filled with many struggles, many troubles still perfect society is a classless society, a society where all differences disappear, not at this time can support another kind of dictatorship than the dictatorship of the proletariat as a class ”

We know that obviously the bourgeois parties that abound in the processes that are developing in Latin America openly renounce the dictatorship of the proletariat. This is one of the fundamental contradictions of them to the theory of Argentine revolutionary party. This is not only based on those games, but of the “communist” parties traditional most of our countries who still cling to Jhrushevismo and opinions of the XX Congress of the U.S. PC, reject the idea of ​​Marxist-Leninist dictatorship the proletariat and she opposed a “popular state”, a “state of all the people” that is just crazy because, while antagonistic social classes exist, the state repressive apparatus will respond to the interests of one . In a society divided between exploiter and exploited, there is no third alternative, or dictatorship of the bourgeoisie or the dictatorship of the proletariat, the exploiters oppress the exploited or vice versa, those who try to go off on tangents, only justify the current dictatorship, ie of the bourgeoisie.

A game where you mix the interests of the bourgeoisie and the proletariat together is not a revolutionary party that we’re clear, a revolutionary party in the first place, it must be a cadre party, a vanguard where are the best elements of the working class revolutionary party is a fundamental requirement that its members do not live other people’s work and have no great interest to operators.

Open the doors of the party to “anyone who wants to register” is a demonstration of the bourgeois character of the same. From management to the foundation of it will have serious and irresolvable contradictions that can only be overcome with the seizure of power by the working class. For example, if converging operators and their representatives in the party, socialism is not viable, because they hinder one of the fundamental rules to move towards this, which is making the basic means of production, the elimination of private ownership the same, the nationalization of banks, the socialization of the land, industrialization and modernization of the country, eliminating the differences between city and countryside, and so on. What do you get with this?, The test have latent in Venezuela and collided with it every moment: the capitalists and landlords are exploiting, killing and crushing the workers and peasants, protected, supported and applauded by the glorious party here exists.

In it, Che was quite clear and precise. The Cuban revolution at first nationalized the major means of production, something very different has happened in other processes petty bourgeois of our continent.

In the Trotskyist

Another revisionist groups that try to deface the image of Che as a revolutionary, are Trotskyists. In this regard, emphasize discourse and compare the attitude of Ernesto Guevara with Leon Trotsky and even a supposed defense and identification of Che with the revisionist Russia. Nothing could be farther from reality, we must answer this with Guevara’s own words against revisionism, Trotskyism and Leninism claim. In 1966, in a speech said: “I have come to Communism by Stalin Dad, I’ve been reading Marxist Stalin, and nobody can tell me not to read his work. I read it even though it was considered very bad read. And since I am a person not too bright and headstrong also continue reading. “In other words:” My duty as a Marxist-Leninist Communist is to expose the reaction behind revisionism, opportunism and Trotskyist comrades and teaching (both in act as in power) should not accept as valid judgments against Stalin formulated by bourgeois, social or other lackeys of the reaction pseudocommunity whose real purpose is to blow up the labor movement from within. ”

In 1953, Ernesto Guevara wrote: “In crossing over the vast dominions of the United Fruit. Again I could convince me that these miserable capitalists are criminals. On a portrait of old and dear Comrade Stalin, I swore not to give me any rest while the miserable capitalists have been destroyed. In Guatemala I will perfect myself to achieve to be a real revolutionary”

These words of Che enough to descend from the clouds to the revisionists and reflect the character and quality of Ernesto as a true Marxist-Leninist who must serve as an example in our efforts to emancipate the working class from the yoke of capitalism in its imperialist phase . Today Che is more relevant than ever because it is the expression of the classic works of Marxism-Leninism.

For Trotsky, we need to analyze who was this character, his attitude to the Russian revolution, against Lenin’s Bolshevik party and the work of the workers in power to develop the technical and industrial base in the country of the Soviets. To accomplish this analysis meet Che incompatibility with this pro-fascist traitor and called for Russian destruction of the Soviet intelligence services with German and Japanese in the prewar period.

From the moment Hitler took power in Germany, the international counter became an integral part of the Nazi plan of world conquest. In every country, Hitler mobilized the counterrevolutionary forces during the last fifteen years had been organizing in the world. These forces then became “fifth columns” of Nazi Germany, organizations of treason, espionage and terror. These “fifth columns” were the secret vanguard of the German Wehrmacht.

One of the most powerful and important of these “fifth columns” acted within Soviet Russia, headed by a man who was perhaps the most notable political renegade in the history of mankind. His name was Leon Trotsky.

When was the Third Reich, and Leon Trotsky was the head of anti-Soviet international conspiracy which had powerful forces within the Soviet Union. Trotsky in exile plotting to overthrow the Soviet government to return to Russia and assume the supreme power, which had once been almost within reach of his hand. Are documented all meetings of the German command Trotsky and Tukhachevsky, former tsarist general.

This anti-communist name Lev Bronstein, was known within the Bolshevik party as the “Red Napoleon”, the explanations are superfluous. It is known that this character was a bitter enemy of Lenin for over 14 years, the most concrete evidence of this was written called “Our task,” where Trotsky poured a lot of accusations and slander against Lenin, similar to the later use against Stalin. When Trotsky warned that the seizure of power by the Bolsheviks is imminent, in August 1917, joins them in the most opportunistic as only he knew how.

Lenin Trotsky never had confidence, and in more than one occasion expressed views about the opportunist. Here are some comments made periodically by Lenin and Trotsky on their activities in the Russian revolutionary movement:

1911: “People like Trotsky, with his words … they are now swollen condition of the time … everyone who supported Trotsky group supports the policy of lies and deceit … workers Trotsky special mission is to throw dust in the eyes of workers, it is not possible to discuss essential things Trotsky because he has no opinions, we just report it as an argument menial.”

1911: “In 1903, Trotsky was a Menshevik, left the Mensheviks in 1904 and returned to them in 1905, boasting all over with phrases ultrarevolucionarias during that time, and again turned away from the Mensheviks in 1906 Trotsky plagiarism today … the ideas of a fraction, and tomorrow another, and so is considered superior to both … I have to declare that Trotsky represents only his own faction. ”

1912: “This group consists of lack of principles, hypocrisy and empty phrases … all under Trotsky ebcubre revolutionary phraseology that does not cost anything or commit you to anything.”

1914: “the old members of the Marxist movement in Russia are very familiar with Trotsky’s personality and not worth talking about it. But the new generation of workers do not know, and we need to let them know … these guys are characteristic fragments of the historical formations of yesterday, when the mass workers’ movement in Russia was still dormant. ”

1914: “Comrade Trotsky has not yet possessed definite opinion on a single issue serious Marxist, always has slipped through the gap opened by this or that discrepancy and has swung from side to side.”

1916: “Trotsky … as always, completely disagrees with the socialchauvinistas in principle, but brand around with them in practice.”

These are some of the opinions that Trotsky was Lenin in all the time Trotsky, Trotskyists is for today, what Jesus is for Christians in their teens.

We can say the killings are the leaders of the party by the clique that operated within the USSR was led by Trotsky. Dr. Leo Levin, a senior associate of Trotsky, infiltrated the Kremlin, was one of the major medical Bolshevik leaders, this man carried out under the guidance of Trotsky’s assassination and Menzhinsky important personages like Maxim Gorky, just to name two of the most emblematic. After the assassination of Menzhinsky was responsible for the GPU, its successor was Yagoda confessed Trotskyist who led the subsequent assassinations of important leaders, the most emblematic was the murder of writer Maxim Gorky, author of the landmark book “The Mother” with his son Peshkov.

Stanislav Rataichak, Trotsky service agent and head of the central administration of the chemical industry, confessed that when Germany was preparing his army hard mid-30, “three slides were prepared, a deviant act in Gorlovka workshops and two more landslides, one in the Nevsky workshops and other chemicals in the workshops combined Voskressensk ”

Yakov Borbnis, Trotsky group and workshop assistant chief Kamerovo said: “The plant was put district in such a condition that if in accordance with the demolition project was deemed necessary to do so, and gave the order, the mine could be flooded . In addition, we provided a coal from the technical point of view it was inappropriate for fuel, circumstances giving rise to numerous explosions. This was done deliberately … many workers are seriously injured ”

These small examples belong to a long chain of attacks, conspiracies and sabotage by anti-Soviet Trotsky and his group, to subvert the country’s industry and leave workers vulnerable to German attack was being prepared since Hitler and the Nazis took power in Germany in 1933 and was fully aware that Trotsky.

All the anti-Soviet Trotsky plot detailed in a study published in the near future, we are making the necessary investigations for publication. Meanwhile, there is more than shown and in the eyes of anyone who figures Trotsky and Che Guevara are not only incompatible but totally contrary, the first anti-traitor, the second a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary. Asked Thinking of Trotsky and Che? Where?

Marxist-Leninist Philosophy of Che

The philosophical content of Che Guevara was none other than Marist-Leninist philosophy, it does not doubt any serious person who is dedicated to the study of South American revolutionary figure. However, from Venezuela, there has been a wave of charlatans making comparisons of Nietzsche and his “superman” with the new man of Che Guevara. Something that seems ridiculous, but it is extremely worrying, more so because these charlatans control state political spheres of power.

It is trying to manipulate the revolutionary masses to keep them out of Marxism-Leninism and abstracting the bourgeois pessimism expressed in the “philosophy of life” in the existentialism of Sartre, Nietzsche and Heidegger, which by the way, the last two are the parents the ideas of fascism in Germany. Let us study what is the “philosophy of life” or existentialism to draw the respective conclusions.

Existentialism or “philosophy of life” is one of the hottest trends today, irrationalist doctrine maybe more characteristic of the period of general crisis of capitalism, which more accurately expresses the spirit of pessimism and decadence that permeates bourgeois ideology of our day.

The most prominent representatives of this philosophy are, in Germany Martin Heidegger and Karl Jaspers, in France, Gabriel Marcel, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus, in Italy, Nicola Abbagnano; in the United States, William Barret. Existentialism is the direct successor of the philosophy of Bergson and Nietzsche: His method has taken considerable part of the phenomenology of Husserl. Its basic ideas of the works of Søren Kierkegaard Danish mystic.

In Germany, the philosophy of life began to take shape after the First World War. The exasperation and despair engendered by the defeat of militarism kaiseriano, the fear of the proletarian revolution in Russia and the revolutionary movement in Germany, the dim hopes for a rematch and the hysterical frenzy of fascism gained strength, formed the political and spiritual he grew up “philosophy of existence”.

Existentialism in a nutshell is the fear of the bourgeoisie and its intellectuals to the rise of the labor movement and popular, all this fear was formed in existentialism reasons largely explain their receptivity in bourgeois circles.

After the Second World War, existentialism morphed into the familiar “philosophy of life” and spread throughout the capitalist world. It spread easily because in an individualistic society like the bourgeoisie, this philosophy is focused (and still focuses) on issues concerning the meaning of life, man’s destiny, choice and personal responsibility, the fear of death , all flows in the name of “philosophy of life.”

To those people, infected by all the prejudices of bourgeois society, who have failed to even make your choice and oscillate between the contending forces (bourgeoisie and proletariat), or try to put over them and feel overcome with bright ideas and at the same time, are aware of the sinking of their supports them just goes “philosophy of life.”

We can not imagine a Che Guevara preaching all the absurdities of bourgeois theory and pessimistic, which is nothing but the widow of capitalism, the justification of bourgeois exploitation of the proletariat and, above all, blame the blame for all ills system to the bad practices of individuals, selfishness, etc.., and not capitalism, only guilty of atrocities and the crisis which we live.

In the period of disintegration of bourgeois society and the spiritual crisis that the slab, the mood emphasize individualistic and become breeding grounds for the reaction against the collectivist ideas of the proletariat and Marxist-Leninist philosophy. This is precisely what we see in these times of turmoil, where social movements come to life as capitalism sinks into a gigantic bankruptcy is no coincidence that this philosophy emerges as the answer to Marxism-Leninism which undoubtedly is gaining momentum for its force and as the only tool capable of eliminating the causes of the crisis, ie the bourgeois mode of production. The Superman figure is without doubt the opposite of this “superman” existentialist just described.

We invite all comrades to study and deepen the figure of Che Guevara. We know your image, like that of Stalin has been corrupted and manipulated at the whim of the imperialists and those who make the game, it is our duty to vindicate Marxist Leninist all the characters have really fought for the emancipation of the proletariat.

PCMLV: The Bolshevik Revolution: 94 years, Present & Necessary

At 94 years of the October revolution, the proletarians of all countries should follow the glorious example of those days where workers “took heaven by assault.”

Introduction

This article is a chronological description of the events of the October Revolution, as we believe that there is already enough material in publications such fraternal parties. What we propose is to mark the importance, relevance of the Bolshevik Revolution and the term with Marxist-Leninist ideas in our time. Our days are marked by the intensification of the contradictions between capital and labor, for the inter-imperialist contradictions and contradictions between imperialist countries and dependent countries.

Such a situation is posed by Stalin in Foundations of Leninism, which leads us to conclude without doubt that the origin of the revolutionary processes of popular democracy that lived in Eastern Europe and other parts of the world is more relevant than ever. Imperialism is a dead end, the objective conditions for revolution are at a historic high larger because of the incredible growth of productive forces in the last decades of last century and early today.

The media (mass media) as ideological agents of the ruling classes, made desperate efforts to attack and pronounced dead the ideas of Marxism as fascist governments Putin-Medvedev duo in the current Russian imperialist struggle so cross a murderer desperate to Comrade Stalin, even falsifying historical documents, capturing with Stalin’s signature stamp on alleged murder warrants that never existed. This, without doubt, do not try to attack the personality of Joseph Stalin alone, but also goes far beyond the ideology of Marxism and Leninism flags raised with such dignity that Comrade Joseph Vissarionovich.

We know all the importance that the work of Stalin in Russia’s industrial development in the construction of socialism, under his leadership and the party and Soviet power in general, laid the groundwork for what is industrially today’s Russia ( considering that the industrial level of Russia today, is nowhere close to that of the 80’s). Along with all the development that was achieved in these important decades of socialism, are the immense social achievements. The claim for these benefits won in the Stalin era and today limited abrogated and violated by capitalist-state agencies, is what causes terror to the bourgeois democrats who rule Russia. They know that not to attack the Soviet social gesture would be in serious trouble with the Russian workers. This working class maintained an extraordinary potential, therefore, the Russian working class is a time bomb that has the capitalists running from one place to another alarm, knowing the history more militant workers who established the first socialist state, the the Soviet state and were (obviously still are) a great example for humanity.

But the revolutionary situation not only lived in Russia but in many countries hit by the effects of bourgeois crisis. The weakest links in the imperialist chain are in a really agitated political situation, especially the most vulnerable economies in Europe.

Past events, often as a reminder chronological study, at best, as general knowledge, the certainty of not relive similar situations is a daily occurrence in the history as we know it. Who could think of a new Napoleon or a Robertspierre restoring greatness to the bourgeoisie, along with a new and enriched edition of “social contract” of Rousseau, I thought it would be unreasonable and backward due to the fact that the bourgeoisie is exhausted as a class. However, something very different happens when we look at the Russian Revolution, its context and its relevance to modern times and most importantly, with the scientific method of historical materialism, where there are individuals who make history but the masses.

That said, we can analyze the existing bourgeois mode of production, which at the time of the Russian Revolution (and long before), had entered a new stage called imperialism that Lenin aptly called “highest and final stage of capitalism.” The nature of imperialism in our time is the same as in 1917, rests on the exploitation of the working class and represents the world dictatorship of the monopolies. For this reason, the workers’ revolutionary struggle against capitalism is not a dream but a necessity than a continuation of the epic scale of the Russian workers, and this is due to the evils of the past century Russia are same as those of any country today. Imperialism is a worldwide chain of oppression and how to kill it is by way of revolutionary violence by the method of Marxism-Leninism.

Little more than 20 years since the Soviet Union collapsed, the bourgeoisie angry celebrated with joy. In the north, Francis Fukuyama proclaimed the end of ideology and history. Communism was declared dead and from now on only be determined by the progress of the world were the technologies, the free market. A “new world order” decreed that communism was an evil overcome and not repeat such a phenomenon.

The overflowing of the bourgeois idealism, soon dropped from the clouds and stepped ashore. In East Germany, social enterprises were absorbed and carried into bankruptcy by private monopolies West Germany, while health, education and all services during the Soviet era were for the benefit of the people were now privatized, in Russia was the same. This short period gave a sense of relative rise of capitalism since the great Russian market was opening up to capital investment, but the wave of immigration began to be felt, the former Soviet republics were broken up, the economic and industrial as tenth world power of the mighty East Germany (GDR) is rapidly transformed into that of an underdeveloped country.

Unemployment, poverty, hunger and other phenomena previously unknown in Eastern Europe begin to intertwine with the heinous vices, moral and social ills deviations of the West (drugs, alcohol, prostitution, organized mafias, speculation, Christianity, etc). The result is we live in today. The severe economic recession in Europe, Asia, North America, Latin America and Africa, which threatens to become depressed and that is an expression of the general crisis of capitalism, is part of a time bomb about to explode, the rivalries between the imperialist powers are sharpened and powerful new imperialist economies like China are profiled. The winds of war are rising worldwide.

The general crisis of capitalism that afflicts different countries in all continents tends to flare up, in a framework of imperialist aggression against sovereign peoples. The workers seem to have come from the lethargy experienced after the fall of the USSR and now, with the inability of the capitalist system to improve the living conditions of the masses, they seek alternatives. Social movements currently rising in many countries of Europe and even in the United States, (angry) despite fight poverty and poor living conditions they are forced to endure capitalism, have no political compass tells them how to get out of the bourgeois system operator. Rather, show spontaneity and disorganization, however, is this a sign of the decay of the system.

One can only ask: Is this coincidence? No similar situation was experienced between 1910 and 1914 which brought the world to the slaughter of the First World War. The same situation was experienced in the 1930s before the second world imperialist war with the “Great Depression” of 1928. It is here where we can find a scientific way today and the need for a proletarian revolution dialectically, repeat the events of Russia 94 years ago, but on a larger scale, on a planetary scale starting with the weakest links capitalism are in Latin America and Europe.

A little history

On November 7 (October 25 on the Julian calendar), 1917, decreed “all power to the Soviets,” the Bolshevik Party led by the great Lenin led the Russian working class to seize political power, began the first socialist revolution in the history of mankind. Nationalization of the banks and industry, expropriation of the bourgeoisie, rights as never before seen in human history: legalization of abortion, free education, equality between legitimate and illegitimate children, separation of church and state, etc. ., Russia’s economic base was removed and destroyed, so sweeping, radical social superstructure hitherto known.

The imperialist powers, stunned and exhausted they could not stand idly by and, despite having left a devastating war between them (World War), were not willing to tolerate a revolution that threatened the foundations of the capitalist system. Cease fighting between the great powers, and now all joined their guns silhouetted against Soviet Russia. The First World War changed contenders, now all against the state of the workers.

The direct foreign military intervention (armies of 14 countries including the U.S. Britain and France), assaulted the young workers’ republic in order to overthrow the Soviet power. The ultra-reactionary White armies plunged the country into a bloody civil war led by fascist Aleksandr Kolchak, Anatoly Pepelyayev, Anton Denikin, Nikolai Nikolaevich Yudenich, among others. But the Red Army overcame the difficulties one by one internal and external armies were defeated by Soviet forces. The death toll caused by the imperialist intervention in the USSR is unknown, it is estimated that the figures exceeded ten million. Despite the victory of the Red Army that remained was a country in ruins, with no means of production and without wheat, a famine caused by the fascists threatened to undo the Soviet state coupled with icy winters in the history of that country. All this, together with the early death of the great Lenin did not prevent the continuation of the great advance of the proletariat.

After Lenin’s death, began squabbling factions that had formed within the party. Bukharin, Trotsky, Zinoviev, Radek and traitors among other reformers fought the lead, tried by all means to divide the Party of Lenin and maintain the old relations of production and obsolete military-feudal, but the party decided overwhelmingly address Joseph Stalin on October 27, 1926. Since that time, the Soviet Union played, or industrializing or be destroyed by imperialism, Russia was half a century of lagging behind other developed countries, they needed a plan, and the plan was carried out magnificently.

Commissioned to continue the work of Comrade Stalin was Lenin, who in an incredibly short, managed to build together the party and workers, scientific socialism. Was developed heavy and light industry, became industrialized, collectivized Tecnifar and the field, the former exploiting classes (bourgeoisie and landlords) were exterminated by the working people. This enabled the country to achieve development by leaps and bounds without the obstacle that represents the parasitism and obsolete bourgeois private property in land and the means of production.

On the social side, the workers won important victories, now all the people had the right to own private property that had been denied individual, abused and raped by capitalism, the right to have houses, cars, and all the amenities that allow to be develop human creative potential to the fullest. The workers were struggling in their job tasks and work voluntary overtime (Saturday communists) with the greatest enthusiasm, knowing that now was for the development of their homeland and not to the pocket of a handful of bourgeois parasites.

The first step was to purge the party of reform and right-wing elements in order to have a solid foundation for future action. Thus was fought as Trotskyism, an arm of the intelligence services Germano-Japanese to finally defeat him in the clearance of so-called Moscow Trials in 1936. With the certainty of keeping the enemy at bay internal anti (Trotskyism), and after having destroyed the organized workers at the forefront with the powerful Communist and Soviet apparatus executed five-year plans, put them into practice.

Russia in the early twentieth century, was a semi-feudal country, backward, and with 94% of the population in a state of illiteracy. The tools used in the field were the most rudimentary of Europe, agriculture techniques were the same as the seventeenth century, only some cities and towns had electricity, not for nothing, said Lenin, “Socialism is Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country. ” To this we add the ravages of war and the blockade imposed on them by the imperialists.

The country lost in time, contrasts, and in 1950 had a solid industry, with a surprising development in the sciences (genetics, chemistry, biology, etc..), Science (the first country to put a satellite into orbit and the first man in space), in the military area, reached almost invincible defeat the German Wermarch (Hitler’s army), the industry of a medieval level went on to become one of the largest in the world, the field is Tecnifar and collectivized the land, the improvements in living standards were amazing. (Read “Balance of the first Five Year Plan” of Joseph Stalin).

The capitalists were stunned, what they had taken 300 or 400 years to build, the USSR succeeded in less than 30 and more surprisingly, no need to exploit and plunder other nations as did the Western powers. They spoke of “a miracle”, the Soviet miracle.

We should not be a miracle or anything like that, but a successful socialist plan. Capitalism can never match that task, but a strong party supported the working class and in the extermination of the bourgeoisie and the landlords as a class, the centralization of credit and the absolute monopoly of industry, commerce and banking may well achieve that development. Only under scientific socialism is possible in improving the living conditions of mankind, no middle class in power has been able to carry out such a feat, only the working class in power, only under the dictatorship of the proletariat can . The working class has been so outraged and have been labeled as uneducated, we show that in a few decades we can do more than any bourgeois democratic government “cult.”

In that sense, not the bourgeoisie and imperialists were able to deny such a degree of development of the proletariat organized bourgeois newspaper Le Temps de France published in summer 1932 in an article “Communism huge rate peaks at the stage of restructuring, in the capitalist system must go slowly … In France, where land ownership is divided into infinity between private owners, it is impossible to mechanize agriculture, the soviets (workers councils), the industrialization of agriculture, have been able to solve this problem … The Bolsheviks won the game we have. ” (Quoted by Stalin in “Balance of the first Five Year Plan”)

At that time, the bourgeoisie had no choice but to accept the superiority of socialism over capitalism. The expropriation and collectivization of land, the mechanization and industrialization of the countryside and thereby phasing out the differences between this and the city, are the most successful actions if we leave the technical backwardness and get the much needed food sovereignty. Under the bourgeois framework, all these hopes will be only a fiction for the simple fact that they do not see private agricultural production as a way of contributing to the community, but as a means for profit.

It is shown that the industrialization of the USSR, the development of the country in every sense is that since the state was not the same, the economic base and not controlling them, all that was achieved because those who were ruled workers and the bourgeoisie, otherwise would have been objectively impossible.

The collapse of the USSR

In 1953, the leader dies conducted by the party and the working people to build socialism, Joseph Stalin, who only months before his death, spoke of a deviation within the Communist Party of the USSR, and that such diversion His plan would consolidate the Soviet Union by way of the restoration of capitalism. Stalin could not carry out its plan to purge the party again deviant elements, since his death prevented it.

That was how the theories of Leninism nourished by the valuable contributions of Comrade Stalin, the class struggle, expropriation without compensation to the landowners and the bourgeoisie, industrialization, the single line in the match squad for the traitors to the proletarian cause, planning of the economy, were declared by Nikita Jhrushov as an aberration. The current pro-capitalist opportunist and to which Stalin wanted to eliminate, triumphed and established himself in power. It was the beginning of the end of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Jhruschov developed its coup plan stating that criticized Stalin’s mistakes in order to “restore Leninism.” Gorbachev made the same demagogic promises to mislead the leftist forces, the result has been that we have today, under the pretext of restoring Leninism, has come to tsarism, under the pretext of “improving the community” has risen to capitalism.

In 1956, Jhrushov, leader of the anti-presented to the XX Congress of the Communist Party of the U.S. His infamous “secret report”, which would lay the foundations of capitalist restoration in the country in which organized workers exercised power in times of Lenin and Stalin.

Thus, in the late 1980’s and early 1990, revisionism Jhrushov planted in 1956 and other traitors, had germinated in all spheres of political life of the organ of the Soviet state. The representative of this opportunism was Mikhail Gorbachev, who, during the 70th anniversary of the October Revolution gave a speech rejecting the anti-imperialist struggle and asserted that imperialism had renounced his violent character in a globalized world in which the Soviet Union, the USA and other countries could cooperate for the common interest of the survival of humanity. XXVIII Congress of the Communist Party of the USSR broke with all the basic principles of Marxism and Leninism, the way was cleared for the final blow.

Yeltsin Yananiev and representatives of capitalism in the Soviet Union, showing the most rancid proclaimed a Russian chauvinism and capitalism only detached from the other Soviet republics, quickly, after this, the attack was general, Latvia, Georgia, Lithuania, Ukraine and proclamations made other separatist republics. In 1989 the retaining wall fell in Berlin anti-fascist and next to him, all hope of the proletariat in these countries.

Indeed, despite the deviant nature and totally reform of these regimes, much of the working class and people in general still believed in them. There is a myth spread among the bourgeois liberals, neo-revolutionaries, and other species sigloventiuneros anti-Marxist, that the Soviet government was not defended by anyone, that the workers did not come to defend their conquests and reaction and fascism obstacles had to retake power in the end “as Peter came by his house.”

This argument does not correspond at all with reality and does nothing but flirt with the anti-bourgeois propaganda. It is one thing not to leave the working people to defend their conquests and quite another is that the means of the bourgeoisie in the midst of his ecstasy reactionary not transmit any of it, or did we forget the events of 2002 in Venezuela and role of the media?, the difference is that our country could not move right and it came out to defend the government by the masses, otherwise, have won the right in our country, in many countries around the world think about Venezuela as well as you think the role of the masses in the fall of the USSR.

In eastern Germany, the masses took to the streets and were crushed by the reactionaries with unprecedented brutality, massacres that went unpunished and forgetting the complacency of the UN and love the look of the bourgeois media. In Russia, we remember the episode known as the “black October”, where workers were defending the last bastion of workers’ power, the Supreme Soviet and the Council of People’s Commissars.

Boris Yeltsin tried to consolidate power, capitalism could not move as desired for the imperialist powers to the coup leaders who demanded the application of neoliberal policies, the main obstacles were the Congress of People’s Commissars and the Supreme Soviet. Yeltsin’s neoliberal decrees were illegitimate and illegal, it went against Soviet constitution in force until then, what Yeltsin proceeded to complete its coup of shamelessly, ordered the dissolution of the Supreme Soviet and the Board of Commissioners People and illegally proclaimed a new constitution.

The conference as stipulated in the Soviet laws were not repealed, rejected the presidential decree and ordered the immediate dismissal of Yeltsin as president, who refused and ignored the Soviet and the Council. Public protests against Yeltsin’s government took to the streets in Moscow. In the repression of these there were several deaths, the blood flowed in the streets as a sign that democracy does not allow “troublemakers.”

The army, under the control of Yeltsin, determined the end of the crisis. Deputies and hundreds of workers locked themselves in the building of the Supreme Soviet, and prepared to resist the siege of the forces under control of the deposed president. The week after popular protests against Yeltsin and Soviet support was growing. Peaked on October 2, 1993. Russia was on the verge of a civil war that threatened the capitalist restore Soviet power. At that point, the military leadership showed their support for the deposed president and he ordered the evacuation of Soviet force. Yeltsin’s order to materialize by bombardment by tanks and artillery of the headquarters building of popular sovereignty. The Supreme Soviet was destroyed and many of its occupants, workers and representatives of popular sovereignty, were killed in the attack.

For the October 5 Yeltsin resistance had been destroyed, a slaughter of unknown proportions occurred in many cities of Russia. The conflict, the conflict was the most serious happened in Moscow since the Russian Revolution of October 1917. The number of dead and missing remains a mystery.

This is to name the most emblematic cases, but they were the only ones in Romania, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic and Slovakia) and all countries of the former USSR, the masses came out to defend the October Revolution, which they considered the Lenin’s legacy. This shatters the malicious words of some modern intellectuals about the revolutionary consciousness of the working class. Although these schemes were diverted to mid-twentieth century, the masses were convinced that capitalism would mean the destruction of working class interests.

Conclusion

The capitalists and the bourgeoisie all over the world celebrated to the utmost the fall of fascism retaining wall and the Soviet Union. The ideas of Marxism-Leninism are currently under attack in the media and in all spheres of bourgeois life as churches and university classrooms, are rated as worthless and unworkable putting in evidence the collapse of the USSR.

We must make clear that the fall of the anti-fascist resistance and the USSR is not the failure of Marxism-Leninism, but the review, a plan devised by imperialism to destroy the country of the dictatorship of the proletariat away from Leninism and Marxism to give way to capitalism. The collapse of the statues of Stalin in 1956, was justified with the excuse to return to Leninism in 1991, the collapse of the statues of Lenin was the result of this “return to Leninism.”

The dictatorship of the proletariat is a fundamental requirement for the construction of socialism. Without this power, you can not take a socialist revolution. With this power, Lenin was able to decree the nationalization of land and property of the exploiting classes, and take control of the economy. We can not conceive that we want to fool with a socialist course built at the base of the bourgeois framework.

In that sense, we must remember the attitude of Lenin and the Bolsheviks to the bourgeois framework of development. Exercising the proletarian dictatorship, the Bolsheviks dissolved in January 1918 the Constituent Assembly, who had been elected after the October Revolution but was dominated by the Social-Revolutionaries and the Mensheviks, because the assembly refused to ratify the Bill of Rights and exploited working people. Later, the Bolsheviks banned the bourgeois parties because they were parties committed to counter-violence and civil war, and because they collaborated with foreign interventionists. Examples like these should have them very much present at the time of the construction of socialism, the class enemy must be destroyed, the two antagonistic classes can not converge on a single system of government.

The class dictatorship of the proletariat is nothing more than an expression of state power necessary to destroy and replace the power of state or class dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, and thus carry out the socialist revolution and prevent recovery of control over society by the counter. The dictatorship of the proletariat, is both a democracy and proletarian democracy for the working people, the masses of workers and peasants. Without the exercise of the proletarian dictatorship against their class enemies, the proletariat and working people can not enjoy democracy for themselves. The proletarian dictatorship is the result of the highest form of democracy within a society divided into classes, is in short account, the revolutionary process that overthrew the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie. It is the guarantee of genuine democracy to the oppressed and exploited class against enemies internal and external, local exploiting classes and the imperialists. These principles were abandoned by the Soviet clique from Jhrushov to Gorbachev and replaced by a cartoon called by them “state of all the people or popular”, that is the reason for the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Today more than ever, the ideas of Marxism-Leninism are being studied by workers around the world, the misery of the masses, relative overproduction crises in general, the failure of capitalism, the infeasibility of the system of imperialism bring the world down the path of progress. All this is proof today of the ideas of Leninism. The Soviet experience of the Bolsheviks should serve as an example for future battles for the construction of socialism and communism.

When the bourgeoisie speaks of the end of communism, in fact we are talking about the failure of revisionism to assert their hatred of the great work done by Lenin, the Bolsheviks and the Russian proletariat in October 1917. By doing this, they think more in the future than in the past. The bourgeoisie wants to deceive us by telling us that Marxism-Leninism is dead forever, but he does because he knows perfectly that this is a great vitality and topicality.

After 22 years since the fall of the USSR, all the contradictions of capitalism are more heightened than ever. A window dreadful hunger, poverty, unemployment, war, economic recession, it opens in the face of workers in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia and bows on their shoulders, only Marxism-Leninism is able to show what is the only way out. Only Marxism-Leninism can bring the working masses in the capitalist world and the oppressed and dependent weapons for their release. All the fuss about the end of communism, which is to disarm attempt (with the vision set in the great struggles to come) to the oppressed masses worldwide.

The workers and proletarians should be aware that now is the time that we must raise the banner of Marxism-Leninism, the flags of the Bolsheviks, follow the example of the October Revolution of 1917 where the proletariat organized as a communist vanguard under the direction of Lenin and Stalin conquered political power, to build socialism, establishing the dictatorship of the proletariat against the exploiters, landlords and landowners. That’s the only way to build socialism, no other.

PCMLV: 22 Years after the fall of the Anti-Fascist Protection Wall

Wednesday November 9, 2011

The date on which the bourgeoisie proclaimed his fictional agonizing final victory and announced the end of ideology

On November 9, 1989 became an orgasmic date for the bourgeoisie and imperialism. The media transmitted as hundreds of people took to the streets to protest against the “communist” regime of East Germany, but these means did not convey the demonstrations where GDR citizens showed their support for the rule pertaining to the block socialist.

The retaining wall fell fascist, released by the bourgeoisie as the “Berlin Wall”. Numerous films, documentaries, thousands of pages of newspapers, magazines, hundreds of university professors by capital prostitutes have bombarded us with the “truths” of the “official story” about the famous wall.

Today, as the manipulation of the media and Western propaganda has caused deep brain manipulations in most people, especially younger generations, it is necessary to analyze from the standpoint of Marxism-Leninism and revolutionary about what happened in the two Germanys. Why the retaining wall built fascist?, What were the reasons for lifting the same, What advantages and benefits brought it to Germany (two) and the world? and especially after the fall of the wall What happened to the territory formerly known as RDA?

This analysis is necessary, since the bourgeoisie does not comply with the numerous writings and programs through its media, is also using artillery to the Venezuelan state media, who have joined the chorus of condemnation against the wall of the anti-capitalist resistance. For example, the news agency statist bourgeois “world YVKE”, on August 13 this year (date commemorated the 50th anniversary of the wall), apart from collecting testimonies of court fascist Angela Merkel and Klaus Wowereit, said the following, “The country was divided in two, West Germany and East German dictatorship, ironically called German Democratic Republic until 1989.” Later in the same article states: “Currently, a steel monument with an ominously dark remains in the Bernauer Strasse, as a sad reminder of the division of Berlin, Germany and throughout Europe, western democratic and dictatorial regimes block east. ”

Apart from the metaphorical mysticism and literary flavor bourgeois state uses this medium to talk about the “sinister wall” can be seen below blouses class all its contents for the bourgeoisie and imperialism, but the fact of calling West Germany, imperialist and bourgeois with the adjective “democratic”. We know that the countries of the so-called socialist camp in Eastern Europe from the XX Congress of the CPSU (Communist Party of the Soviet Union) in 1956, leaving aside the Marxist-Leninist model to adopt a revisionist position that undoubtedly corroded the foundations of the state socialist and gradually led to the restoration of capitalism called socialist bloc. However, we should not ignore some dignity and cunning actions that led out to defend themselves from fascism, one construction of the wall of the antifascist resistance.

No other media will reflect the state regarding this issue to avoid wasting time and consider these views and features own ignorance. Something that we should speak clearly is the other walls, for example at the border of Mexico, where the U.S. built a gigantic wall, Israel, Morocco and many other capitalist countries have built walls to segregate entire populations in clear acts of fascism, xenophobia and racism. We ask, would be so brave lords “YVKE world” to condemn Brazil, where there is a wall in the city of Rio de Janeiro, to prevent the inhabitants of the favelas (slums) pass beautiful, bourgeois city? Obviously not. Recall and business agreements between Brazil and the Venezuelan state, (which financially supports this alleged news agency) prevent or rather, put a brake and editorial lines to its publications. World YVKE has what in newspaper parlance of our country known as a “Muzzle arepas.”

Let us now examine the causes of the construction of the retaining wall fascist, therefore we will focus almost exclusively on the book “RDA historical compendium” of the historian Heinz Heitzer, precisely in section XV of the second chapter entitled “the security measures taken on August 13, 1961. ”

Conditions that necessitated the construction of retaining wall antifascist

After the Second World War, more specifically in the 1950 and 1960, begins to take shape the revolutionary movement. Despite the treacherous policy of the USSR in 1956, where they break with Marxism-Leninism of fact and revisionist policies are of a revolutionary discourse, the correlation of forces changes significantly. Comes an impressive rise of national liberation movements in the dependent countries and colonies, many countries are heading in the model called real socialism and the colonies gain their independence. In Cuba the revolution is in the face of U.S. imperialism, military dictatorships fall in Venezuela and other countries, the discourse of democratic and nationalist leaders increasingly condemned the war policy of the United States, created the “Warsaw Pact “in Poland to bring together the countries of popular democracy and defending imperialism, and so on.

During this period, the GDR began to shine as a country in solidarity with the struggle of peoples, with a total support to the newly liberated countries and those who fought for national liberation. Remember as he opened consulates and embassies in states which were not recognized by Western countries, thus creating a strong pressure on the UN to legitimize the independence of many of them.

The brutal imperialism reacted and was bathed in blood as well as Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean in those days. An attempted invasion of Cuba and numerous plots and attacks of any kind against the Caribbean island were unsuccessful. However, the imperialists know that the main enemy and example of the people he was fighting in eastern Europe, so all attacks headed East Germany. To do this, put together an impressive heir to the fascist government of Hitler Nazism, of democratic mask of the Federal Republic or West Germany.

The bourgeois-imperialist state of the RFA had his plans and prospects very clear, and there were others that the annexation of the GDR and thus open the way for the imperialist conquest of the entire Eastern Europe, relying on its military and heavy weight economy.

On the military level, NATO created a blitzkrieg plan (the same as Hitler used during World War II) to invade and annex the GDR territory, the operation was known as the secret name (Day X). The Government of the FRG break diplomatic relations with Yugoslavia, in 1957, and Cuba, in 1960, because these countries had established diplomatic missions in the GDR, and vice versa. He rejected the proposition of the RDA to build a German conference, also rejected the propositions presented in 1958/59, the Soviet Union in the sense of granting the status of West Berlin a demilitarized free city and prepare a treatise on peace with Germany. In addition, the Government of the RFA suggested its NATO allies should oppose equal to these offers. At the same time, political leaders of the CDU / CSU feverishly endeavored to equip the federal army with nuclear weapons.

In order to prepare the “Day X” appointed day to overthrow the power of the workers and peasants, the monopolies and the Government of the FRG climbed the economic war against the GDR. In the fall of 1960, the Government of the FRG canceled trade agreements with the GDR and other states suggested boycotting the Leipzig Fair. Although, in December, the Government of the FRG had to give up despite the cancellation of the boycott suggestion did not work, severe problems for the national economy of the GDR, which was subject to significant supplies from the RFA. We had to make changes to the plan and make changes in production, since he had to have another trade embargo. The Soviet Union and other CMEA member countries warning to the RDA of important goods, raw materials and food in addition to the said amount in the corresponding agreements. We developed a movement to rid the economy of the GDR of shocks: workers, technicians and scientists from the GDR produced in a very short time, products previously imported from the FRG.

Economic blackmail was accompanied by anti-slander propagated by many mass media in the FRG and West Berlin. Infamy resembled in many details released fascist atrocities against Czechoslovakia and Poland, shortly before they were victims of assault in 1938 and 1939. This fallacy was intended to create confusion and nervousness among citizens of the GDR, and global advertising suggest that the RDA would be brewing a “popular uprising” that Western countries had to support with all means at its disposal . That was a newspaper sympathetic to the CDU wrote that “the free world would be prepared to use every means of the cold war, war and war of nerves with guns … This includes not only traditional armed forces and their weaponry, but also includes undermining, incite internal resistance, clandestine activities, the breakdown of order, sabotage, disruption of transport and the economy, disobedience, rebellion, the revolution. ”

In an attempt to bleed publicly proclaimed the GDR, intensified the bribery of GDR citizens, especially specialists and young people, spread the network of criminal organizations, promoted by the State germanooccidental, dedicated to this trafficking. West Berlin opened its border to the GDR, played the role of outflow channel.

All this, linked to the direct preparation of military aggression against the GDR. In the maneuvers of Staff and the federal army troops, undertaken in 1960/61, were tested several variants of the “blitzkrieg” and the “limited war” against the GDR and other socialist states. Some politicians and commentators hinted that the Federal army there could be a situation where I had to liquidate the “internal conflict” through a “local police action.” That conflict could arise as a result of clashes on the borders of West Berlin. The threat to the U.S. nuclear potential – Still speculating politicians and commentators would prevent the intervention of the Soviet Union.

In July 1961, ‘Research Council of problems of reunification of Germany “in Bonn presented a detailed plan for the” Day X “. This plan incorporated the GDR to the FRG, to divide the town-owned enterprises and banks among the monopolies of the RFA, agricultural cooperatives dissolve and deliver the land and real estate, especially the landowners and the landowners. In the second half of July, Franz Josef Strauss, then Minister of Defence of the RFA and head of the federal army, and one of the most bellicose imperialist politicians of yesterday and today, paid a visit to the U.S. to ensure their support. In early August he declared a state of alert for NATO units stationed in Western Europe. The GDR imperialist invasion was imminent.

The allied socialist states could not sit idle during this development that raised serious threats to peace. The experience of history had been taught that we had to stop the assailant before being tackled. For this reason, the socialist armies united in the Warsaw Treaty Organization increased its provision for defense. It was necessary, above all, stop tensions from West Berlin, and counteract the danger that a local conflict in West Berlin borders lead to a military confrontation with unpredictable consequences.

For years, the GDR had kept open its borders with West Berlin, despite these open borders originated under extremely difficult for socialist construction. He had done so as not to hinder an agreement on the signing of a peace treaty and normal relations with the FRG and West Berlin. However, this policy of reconciliation that corresponded to the interests of the citizens of the GDR, the FRG and West Berlin, had no effect or the Government of the FRG, or West Berlin Senate, led by social democrats. On the contrary, was answered with a permanent cold war against the power of the workers and peasants. In the summer of 1961, the tensions had reached such a point that was postponed taking severe measures aimed at safeguarding the peace and protecting socialism.

From 3 to August 5, 1961, the first secretaries of the communist parties and workers of the Member States of the Warsaw Pact, in Moscow discussed the measures in the GDR and the USSR. The meeting proposed to the House of Peoples, the Government and all workers in the GDR “enter on the border with West Berlin an order to close, so infallible, the way to the subversive activities against the socialist countries, and ensure safe monitoring and efficient control around the entire territory of West Berlin, even on its border with democratic Berlin ”

On August 11, 1961, the People’s Chamber, on proposal of the SED CC, instructed the Cabinet take all necessary steps in this regard.

On the night of 12 to August 13, 1961, the agreed measures were taken with speed, accuracy and total surprise to the intelligence services of imperialism. The National People’s Army units, the militia of the working class, the border police and the People’s Police made a joint action with the Soviet armed forces stationed in the GDR, and took charge of the military defense of the national borders of the GDR. Together with the workers raised the fortifications on the border with West Berlin, which were completed in the coming months. This was known to control the focus was West Berlin war, and secured the borders of the GDR, including West Berlin.

The security measures August 13, 1961 were a joint political action of the Member States of the Warsaw Treaty, thus curbing aggressive imperialist circles in the FRG and other NATO member states, and protecting the peace in Europe . These measures limited the direct subversion of imperialism in the FRG and inflicted a resounding defeat. Strategy completely failed to annex the GDR in a frontal attack. The bourgeois politicians and historians themselves had to admit that the August 13, 1961 began the decline of the Adenauer era in the FRG. A bourgeois newspaper wrote at that time that this day had failed showed that the FRG government policy “of seeking reunification through weapons and force.”

United and determined action of the Member States of the Warsaw Treaty documented the real balance of forces, documented the deep roots of the GDR in the community of socialist states, inviolability and sovereign socialist state. Also people who do not sympathize with the Communists, acknowledged today that the August 13, 1961 was a decisive step to replace the cold war detente.

The above policies of betraying the Marxist-Leninist principles by the Soviet Union gradually undermined the structure of the socialist countries, leading to the 1989 collapse of the wall of anti-fascist resistance and the fall of the USSR which meant the defeat of the revisionists who seek models deny the Marxist-Leninist economic planning.

The consequences of the fall of fascism retaining wall.

The retaining wall was a strategy fascist impressive effects, the cause of his fall was not primarily the pressure of imperialism and the bourgeois Germany, but the eastern side of Soviet revisionism. Erich Honecker, leader of the GDR strongly opposed to measures of bourgeois restoration of capitalism imposed by the Soviet Union was a strong supporter even crush the demonstrators traitors and counterrevolutionaries with the military factions. However, the USSR refused to support it, leaving the RDA to drift into the hands of NATO, with the combative little excuse to avoid a bloodbath in gigantic proportions, so timid, the government capitulated to the GDR the USSR, which in turn did the same against imperialism, fell off the wall and all the achievements of the working class in this country.

In the euphoria of the bourgeoisie, promised many great things the German people, but not told that the introduction of market economy mean mass unemployment, factory closures and the virtual destruction of important parts of the industrial base the GDR, and the general increase in prices, and the demoralization of the youth sector or that they would be considered second-class citizens in their own country. They did not tell these things and found them through bitter experience.

The disastrous collapse precipitated the reunification of East Germany’s GDP, with declines of 15.6 percent in 1990 and 22.7 percent in 1991, culminating in a decline in third. Million jobs were lost. Many eastern factories were bought by western competitors and then closed.

The GDP per capita of the GDR was slightly higher than the average German, East Germany was richer than other countries in Western Europe. But twenty years after unification the living standards in East Germany are behind the West. Unemployment doubles western levels and wages are significantly lower.

Unemployment in the GDR was virtually unknown. But the population declined by 3.3 million since 1989 to 1992. The East German real GDP has barely increased their level of employment languishes 1989 and 60 percent of its 1989 level. Currently, unemployment in Germany as a whole is about 8 percent, but in East Germany the figure is 12.3 percent. However, some official estimates put unemployment at 20 percent and among young people even 50 percent.

Women who achieved a high degree of equality in the GDR, as in other countries of Eastern Europe have suffered much. Data from the German Socio-Economic Panel of the mid-nineties indicate that 15 percent of the female population in East and 10 percent of men were unemployed.

In July 1990 the “chancellor of unity”, Helmut Kohl, promised: “In a joint effort soon transform [the East German regions] Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Saxony-Anhalt, Brandenburg, Saxony and Thuringia in booming areas.” Fifteen years later, a BBC report admitted that “statistics are bleak.” Despite an injection of capital estimated at 1.25 billion euros, the unemployment rate in the East was still 18.6 per cent in 2005 (before the current recession) and in many areas exceeds 25 percent.

Halle, in Saxony-Anhalt, which was an important center for the chemical industry with more than 315,000 people, has lost almost a fifth of its citizens. Before the fall of the fascist retaining wall in 1989, the “chemical triangle” Leuna-Halle-Bitterfeld, it employed 100,000 people, now there are only 10,000. Gera had large textile companies and defense, and some uranium mines. Have disappeared and the same has happened with most state enterprises since 1989.

Eastern GDP per capita increased from 49 percent of the western level in 1991 to 60 percent in 1995, since then convergence has stopped advancing. The economy grew about 5.5 percent per year, but were not creating many new jobs. As a result the East is emptying. Since unification approximately 1.4 million people have moved west, most of them young and educated people. Emigration and the steep drop in fertility have led to an annual decline of the eastern population since unification.

Some data in the GDR before the capitalist coup

The propagandists of the bourgeoisie, we generally speak of the Democratic Republic of Germany as a backward state, with few civil liberties of its citizens starving, attacking the communist police who did not keep what the bourgeoisie calls only thought is spoke of a chronic low education and illiteracy, a country without culture, etc.. Technology and industry, we are told that East Germany had nothing to offer the world and that all products and equipment they had, was imported from the Soviet Union (which was not a developed country). This argument highlights the lack of seriousness of those who defend the bourgeois system.

Leaving aside all the vagaries of the defenders of capitalism, show a little, although in general because of the limited space available, the entire industrial capacity, science and technology developed in the GDR.

After the Allies and the West German fascists rejected Stalin’s letter, which proposed the demilitarization of Germany and its unification, the GDR realized he could not lose time to develop industrial and technologically, would otherwise be prey to the fascist enemy. So in 1951, begins the first five year plan. Hundreds of thousands of workers marched through the streets of major cities to get to work on their socialized and free days were devoted to volunteer work, following the example of Sobbótniki “Saturday communist” Soviet workers who were his inspiration.

In order to meet the growing needs of steel in the economy and counter the impact of a steel embargo declared by the RFA, the workers of the steel mills and rolled organized in the fall of 1951, the first special emulation as part of a whole branch of industry. More than 9,000 brigades managed to conquer, in 1951, the title “Brigade of excellent quality.” This is only a small example of everything made in this country, with the motto “learning from Stalin’s Soviet Union is to learn to beat,” undertook a great achievement in all branches of industry, becoming one of the world’s most developed countries . The GDR was ranked number 10 of the most advanced countries in the world with all its development.

In 1957, the GDR produced twice before the Second World War in the same territory. In the same year in the GDR were extracted 213 million tons of lignite, 50% of global production, it produced 32.7 thousand kilowatt hours of electricity (much like in Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Finland together) and 2.9 million tons of steel, 14 times more than in 1947. In chemical production, the GDR was the second highest level of world production and was the largest exporter of machinery throughout the East. Until 1965, industrial production was five times higher than before the war.

In the GDR was achieved for the state to the major means of production in agriculture, the method was applied Leninist cooperative collective farms and large, eliminated the bourgeoisie and landlords, this being a decisive step to achieve industrialization.

Moreover, with regard to culture and education, one of the principles agreed at the V Congress of the SED said: “The best all workers understand the superiority of socialism over capitalism, the righteousness of the socialist perspective and the role history of the German Democratic Republic …, the more consciously participate in the fulfillment of economic tasks, political and cultural rights set out in socialist construction. The higher the socialist consciousness of all workers, the more rapid will be the socialist development and the greater the success in the economy, science and culture. “We know that development of a country to such a level as that of the GDR would have been impossible without the professionalism of the workers. This leaves no room for the blunders of the defenders of capitalism.

The private education system was abolished, thus removing any obstacle to people’s education, rural schools were eliminated one-room, which was the prevailing and established a strong education system with its various ramifications which allowed the formation of experts in the different areas that the country needed to industrialize.

Programs designed for the socialist transformation of universities and colleges set the trends of development of important disciplines and institutes. In comparison with the theories and concepts do not reactionary scientists, came to predominate Marxism-Leninism in many disciplines, especially in the social sciences. The new intellectuals, who came from the working class, were taking more and more functions of high responsibility. At the same time, a growing number of intellectuals who came from the remnants of the old middle classes, many leading experts in their field, went through a complicated process, overcame his doubts and reservations and ended up participating in socialist construction.

In efforts to a socialist culture, created literary and other arts that aesthetically reflect the development trends of the period of transition from capitalism to socialism. Penetrated deeply and expressed the complicated process of change in man. Among them were poems and novels. Bruno Apitz of the Buchenwald concentration camp, “Naked among wolves”, is known in many countries. In addition, works by Johannes R. Becher, Willi Bredel, Jurij Breza, Luis Fürnberg, Hans Marchwitza, Anna Seghers and Erwin Strittmatter. The new generation of socialist writers compose Günter Görlich, Herbert Jobst, Herbert Nachbar, Dieter Noli, and others. Theatre and Bertolt Brecht’s drama and musical theater realistic Walter Felsenstein became famous in the world. In the visual arts highlights the works of Walter Arnold, Fritz Cremer, above all, the Buchenwald memorial, Lea Grundig, Rene Graetz, Hans Kies and others. Paul Dessau, Hanns Eisler, Jean Kurt Forest, Günter Kochan, Ernst Hermann Meyer and others excelled in music. A socialist awareness made a significant contribution of the DEFA film art, with some feature films, and a series of documentary films about the Nazis and war crimes, and the resurgence of militarism and revanchism in the FRG.

The socialist labor movement gave great impetus to set a closer relationship between art and people. The circles of art lovers, workers with literary interests and other similar activities, characterized more and more cultural and intellectual life. An expression of the new level achieved at the confluence of professional and amateur artists and workers’ participation in the life of art, were the Workers Festivals, held since 1952 under the auspices of the Free German Trade Union Confederation ( FDGB).

All these achievements were marred by the events of 1956 in the USSR. The Twentieth Congress of the CPSU was a heavy blow to the consolidation of Marxist-Leninist ideas not only in the GDR, but in many countries of popular democracy. Were imposed political and economic lines, under threat of economic blockade, Germany did not resist the blackmail and quickly adapted to the designs of the Soviet reformers led by Jrhushev and company. Only worthy examples in Eastern Europe such as Albania refused to participate in this coup d’etat to Marxism-Leninism. However, the superiority over capitalism and its model of exploitation is more than evident.

So much did the despair of Western fascists and their imperialist masters, who tried to stop by force of arms all this flowering of the GDR. The construction of the retaining wall fascism was justified and necessary a fact that has passed into history as an act of dignity and sovereignty of a people threatened by murderers and genocidal interests of NATO.

We know that few leftists, socialists and progressives have spoken in our country regarding this issue, first, because they never have approached from a scientific point of view, but by bourgeois propaganda, this was the case of the monster called “global YVKE” showed its commitment to the ruling classes. We do not claim, of course this is the last word on the retaining wall fascist, at least we intend to help the workers, students and other revolutionary sectors are removed from the head the bourgeois cliché “perverse wall” and delve into the facts objectively, just as we do Marxist-Leninist revolutionaries.

PCMLV: Editorial Revolutionary Steel No. 11, September 2011


Organ of the Central Committee PCMLV

Capitalism in its upper stage (imperialism) remains in the decomposition process, rules and laws are violated without regard for themselves, the superstructure “legal” mounted at the end of World War II no longer serves its purpose. Such is the effect of the crisis, that treaties, agreements and international organizations are becoming a nuisance to the need to implement measures “to end the crisis,” according to its logic operators.

In each country and the world government control, the structures of bourgeois democracy begin to hinder the real government, the monopoly of large corporations. These measures apply to take control directly, but trying to keep the discourse civil rights is nothing other than what happened in Spain with the constitutional amendment, or more bloody in Libya, where large corporations are distributing oil wells, refineries and contracts “reconstruction”, as they did in Eastern Europe, Iraq, Afghanistan and how they’re doing in the rest of the Maghreb and other regions will do so, this is just the beginning of the imperialist offensive to the real threats to their economic and political system of domination is in deep crisis.

These situations, typical of the general crisis of the general crisis of capitalism, they foreshadow the third stage of the same expressions with economic, political and social unconcealed, but also has serious consequences for workers and the people who are losing their rights to an immense bourgeois onslaught.

In the face of popular demonstrations in Europe and North Africa, advancing social and leftist projects in Latin America, the wave of protests by petty-bourgeois sectors and trade unions, the radicalization of youth and the greater activity of truly revolutionary organizations , especially proletarian character, acts imperialist direction before being wrapped by these expressions of discontent and strife, cause and accelerate the decomposition to try to impose their fascist-style authoritarian project, for which the terror, the drug, illicit enterprises, despair, religious sects play a role.

They create a climate of fear about the future, fear about the future, suitable for the implementation of fascist capitalist model, which can control the agitation of the masses by means of subjugation and violence to impose the adjustment measures.

We are on the verge of a more aggressive imperialist stage that will undoubtedly lead to popular mobilization and violence in a direct call to the attempt to impose unilateral bourgeois domination, leaving aside the hypocrisy of his “bourgeois democracy” to enter in a directly to fascism.

For revolutionaries, especially for the Marxist-Leninists, this is not something unknown, our classics and our theoretical and practical experience realize these phenomena during the first and the second stage of the general crisis of capitalism, but also give us indication of how face this period shall be of wars, and revolutions, where the most important is to strengthen the organizations of struggle of the proletariat. Supported by the action of the revolutionary masses in the worker-peasant discontent attract other layers and take urgent need of the conquest of political power to break with the capitalist relations of production.

The situations of violence promoted and encouraged by capitalism tell us that live in complex times, the repression against the revolutionary class act and will be on the agenda, no shortage of excuses for it, from the need to replace unions by other structures ” modern, “flexible” “to the need to” sacrifice for the fatherland “, operators have always devised ways of manipulation to try to deceive the workers, and when they no longer serve them, because workers have no conscience and we fall, then resort to outright violence.

Violence reactionary, fascist organization must be answered and proletarian revolution, only then can we truly overcome the crisis and build a world of happiness for the majority.

PCMLE: “The real emancipation of the peoples is the revolution and socialism”

From En Marcha, #1545
Organ of the Central Committee of the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador
August 19 to 25, 2011

As part of the work that the International Conference of Marxist-Leninist Parties and Organizations is carrying out, last July a meeting of the Latin American parties took place. At the meeting were the Revolutionary Communist Party of Brazil, the Communist Party of Colombia (Marxist-Leninist), the Communist Party of Labor of the Dominican Republic, the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Ecuador, the Communist Party of Mexico (Marxist-Leninist) and the Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Venezuela.

After evaluating the work that these parties are carrying out in each of the countries and discussing the most important events that are taking place in the region and the world, the meeting approved a Political Declaration that we reproduce below.

U.S. imperialism and its European allies: France, England, Spain, Italy, are trying to manipulate the just struggle of the Arab peoples, to channel the indignation of the working masses and the youth towards a change of names, maintaining the economic and social structures and the weight of dependency.

After reviewing the latest events in our countries, in Latin America and the world we declare:

1. The stories told by imperialism claiming that there is a recovery from the crisis are falling apart every day, with the increasing numbers of unemployed, the decrease in production, the worsening of the fiscal deficits and the increase in the foreign debt in most of the countries of Europe, in Japan and the U.S.A., which seriously affect the supposed stability of the capitalist system and sharpening its inherent contradictions. This prolonged crisis that is affecting all the countries of the world shows not only the failure of the recovery policies implemented by imperialism, but also the decay of the system, which is mortally wounded and incapable of guaranteeing the well-being and freedom for which humanity is struggling.

2. The struggle of the working class, the working people, the youth and the peoples is spreading all over the world. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Jordan, Syria, Yemen and other countries of North Africa and Asia Minor are an example of the struggle against the reactionary dictatorships and governments, who with the applause of the bourgeoisies and the imperialist powers have sunk these peoples into the deepest crisis, hunger and the cruelest misery, despite the immense wealth generated by the exploitation of oil, gas and other natural resources. In addition, with the complicity of the UN they resort to military intervention, to the bombing of the civilian population in Libya, using the pretext of the fight against tyranny, all with the aim of guaranteeing the established order and the continuity of all its profits that are the product of colonization and exploitation of these peoples. We completely reject the foreign intervention in Libya. It is up to the Libyan people themselves to resolve the problems of their country. No more military aggression and intervention in Afghanistan and Palestine! We Communists raise the banner of self-determination, sovereignty, well-being and freedom!

3. Active and valiant opposition to imperialism and the reactionary governments is also alive in Europe. In Greece, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Ireland, France, England and other countries of Europe there has been a general rejection of the reduction in wages, the pension reforms, the increase in taxes, privatizations and the reduction of the budgets for health care, education, housing and in general of all the legislative programs by which the crisis is being placed on the shoulders of the working masses. Numerous strikes and mobilizations are showing an important revival of the working class and youth that is again speaking out for unity and the political initiative to confront the recovery policies and to reject the reactionary governments. The great mobilizations of youths that are taking place in Spain and other European countries deserve particular mention, which show the exhaustion of bourgeois democracy and the search for roads to social liberation.

4. In Latin America the struggle continues, it is showing a greater advance and development. The structural adjustment policies implemented by most of the governments in the last years have not achieved their expected objectives, much less do they represent measures aimed at the well-being of the masses. The different struggles that are developing in our countries calling for higher wages, labor stability, respect for the right to association, negotiation, collective contracts and strikes, the rejection of outsourcing, the demands for health care and education, greater rights and liberties are arousing the ever greater participation of numerous organizations on the continent that do not kneel before the measures of the bourgeois governments and that struggle for political freedom for the people. The student youth in Chile together with the working masses and the Mapuche people are carrying out large mobilizations in defense of freedom, public education and democracy. The desire for change is breaking through in our various countries, large contingents of the masses are participating in the political struggle and are taking up the banner of working for the victory of democratic and progressive governments that really promote the defense of sovereignty, respect of human rights, well-being and political freedom. The democratic and anti-imperialist tendency in Latin America is an unquestionable fact that is opening the way, is growing and offering numerous possibilities for the advance of the revolution.

5. The rise through elections of several democratic and progressive governments in Latin America constitute important steps in that direction. Nevertheless today, the existence and continuity of these governments is threatened by the rightist offensive of imperialism and the local bourgeoisies that have not given up the privileges that they have enjoyed in our countries for centuries. The offensive of imperialism and the oligarchies has reversed the direction of several of those governments, which have been transformed into open defenders of the capitalist system, of foreign domination; into a form of the old ways of governing, into those who carry out repression against the working masses and the youth, into prettifiers of representative democracy and promoters of developmentalist and reformist measures. In fact, these governments and history show that real change, the social revolution and national liberation cannot be carried through to the end under the leadership of bourgeois and petty bourgeois classes and parties. That responsibility belongs to the working class, the working masses, the peoples and the youth, to the revolutionary party of the proletariat, to the genuinely revolutionary organizations and parties.

6. Imperialism, its allies and servants, the local bourgeoisies in all the countries are persisting in their reactionary policies of repressing the struggle of the working masses, of the indigenous peoples and the youth by fire and sword, at the time that they try to co-opt the social movement by means of social welfare policies and one reform or another. One expression of those policies is the presence of U.S. imperialist troops and those of their Latin American servants in Haiti. In the same way it is continuing the trade embargo against Cuba and actions aimed at subverting the Venezuelan process. The persecution, jailing and assassination of social fighters and revolutionaries are irrefutable testimony of the fact that the struggle continues and that repression, however harsh and bloodthirsty it may be, cannot do away with the ideals and the determination to fight for social and national liberation. We emphatically express our solidarity with the comrades who are suffering repression and torture in Honduras, Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Paraguay and Peru. In particular we demand the freedom of the Ecuadorean student leader Marcelo Rivera, who remains in prison, accused and condemned as a terrorist by the Correa government, for defending university autonomy.

7. The betrayal by the government of Rafael Correa and the struggle of the Bolivian workers against “the gasolinazo” in Bolivia are making clear not only the real limitation of these governments, but also the need to make clear to the working class and the social and mass organizations what is the real road to social change. Experience shows that neither reformism nor class conciliation can lead to change. Real change, the genuine emancipation of our peoples is the revolution and socialism, which is only possible if there is a revolutionary political vanguard capable of pushing through a genuinely revolutionary program at the head of the struggles of the working class, the working masses and the peoples.

8. The continuity and development of the struggle of the workers, the peoples and the youth in the countries of Latin America is guaranteed by historical tradition and the present combats, the perspective is the developing along the road of the social revolution. Our Continent is and will be the scene of great liberating struggles and we Marxist-Leninist communists will fulfill and affirm our position as shock troops of the revolution and socialism.

9. The strengthening of the right-wing, corporatist and social welfare policies in most of the governments of Latin America will not make us back down from the search for true social and national emancipation. We Marxist-Leninist parties of Latin America reiterate our commitment to link ourselves boldly and decisively to the struggles that the working class, the working people, the peasantry, the youth, the women and the peoples in general are developing, as well as our irrevocable decision to advance in the unity and leadership of their struggles, winning them for the revolution and socialism.

10. We make the words of Lenin ours: “If in the course of the struggle we win the majority of the workers to our side – not only the majority of the exploited, but the majority of the exploited and oppressed – we will really win”.

PCMLV: In the Midst of Crisis, to Disclose our Theory is a Labor of Great Importance

Marxist-Leninist Communist Party of Venezuela in Issue No. 22 of “Unity & Struggle”

Translations by George G

The working class has the historical responsibility of assuming its role as vanguard in carrying out the proletarian revolution, defeating capitalism and imperialism, making legitimate use of the various forms of struggle to build socialism.

This demands of the revolutionaries the study of Marxism-Leninism as the fundamental guide to our action, to guide the masses, to work for their political organization and education, generating in the working class and the popular masses a solid sense of class consciousness and the necessary revolutionary class organization as guarantee of the triumph over capitalist society and its various expressions.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin stated clearly: “Without revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement.”

But it is not just any theory that a revolutionary movement requires to guide the oppressed masses in the struggle for the overcoming of capitalism and the building of socialism; it is the scientific theory of Marxism Leninism, created by Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin, tested in hundreds of battles and consolidated with the concrete activity of the building of socialism in the countries where it has been possible to break the chain of imperialist oppression and start the accumulation of experiences with communist ideas. In this the Russian revolution is an obligatory reference, Lenin and Stalin, the architects of this great work, which Engels foresaw already in 1893 in the preface to the Manifesto of the Communist Party.

In the struggle for socialism we must fight the ideological battle against all harmful tendencies for the labor movement: reformism, revisionism and opportunism, which are bent on weakening and destroying the proletarian revolutionary organization, and its replacement by petty bourgeois and bourgeois organizations to mislead the working class and its allies.

To demonstrate the falsity of the trends referred to above, it is of vital importance to guarantee the final victory of great exploited and oppressed majorities over the exploiting minority and definitively overcoming capitalism in all its forms.

To contribute to the guidance and education of the working class, the working masses and peoples, we must study real experiences, in particular those that managed to go beyond the stage of preparation and advance along the road of building socialism; in this Lenin and Stalin made the greatest advances, not only by their proposals, but by their work of building a new society in a particular country and its progressive extension around the world. Therefore we pay a well-deserved tribute to the great historic legacy of this experience that succeeded in laying the practical foundations for socialism and initiating a bright phase of proletarian internationalism with the creation of the Third International, founded in March 1919 in Moscow. The great teachers combined the building of socialism in the USSR with the international organization of communists; they combined the struggle for the building of socialism in the countries where there were specific conditions to that end, with proletarian internationalism.

The Third International was born two years after the great victory of the Russian proletariat in the revolution of 1917, which contributed significantly to the orientation, dissemination of materials and training of the communist parties around the world, to act as a guide in organizing the social revolution, supporting the struggle of the colonial countries for their independence from imperialist subjugation and domination.

The Third International took up the task of preserving and safeguarding the theoretical and practical heritage of the consistent Marxists, who had been degenerated and corrupted by the Second International. Its birth marked the political rupture of the communist parties with reformism and opportunism of social-democracy that had already shown its true face and complete bankruptcy placing itself on the side of the capitalists during the First World War.

The lessons of the Third International are more important now than ever; in the orientation of the working class, its actions, its organization and this is shown each day in the struggles that have been undertaken by the working class, the working masses and people on a world scale in the light of the crisis engulfing the capitalist mode of production.

Stalin as continuator of the work of Lenin raised questions which were part of the needs of the Soviet people to move towards socialism, in his “Economic Problems of Socialism in the Soviet Union” he made an analysis of the fundamental laws that come into play in the building of socialism and set out the practical tasks of the revolutionaries to advance in a concrete way.

Consistent with the Marxist-Leninist legacy we consider it necessary to publicize the works of Stalin and the work of the Third International to understand how they contributed to the defeat of the fascist forces during World War II, and placed the communists at the forefront of the struggle against fascism during the Great Patriotic War to hold high the banners of Lenin and advance in the building of socialism under the conditions of imperialism, with a great proletarian practical and concrete sense.

When the imperialist offensive tried to erase the legacy of the great theoreticians of Marxism-Leninism and destroy their work, the communists must make the greatest efforts to make these known to the proletariat and the masses in general, works that are fundamental and must be known and valued for who are seriously trying, without petty bourgeois prejudices, to advance towards socialism, having first-hand information about the most important experiences of the working class.

In addition to the practical work among the masses, the organization and building up of a revolutionary membership, it is necessary to oppose the campaign of discrediting carried out by the reactionaries against our classic leaders and their work. It is an urgent task of the communists to spread these, even more when the world is being shaken and the masses are taking to the streets to look for alternatives to their problems. We Communists must be there with our rich experience to say, especially the working class: “there is a way out of the crisis, it is proven and at your disposal, it is socialism and the Marxist-Leninist theory.”

Each day there will be more people to take up the fight, it is our responsibility to make our proposals and historical experience known so that imperialism does not again use its deception and manipulation, there are winds of revolution, let us prepare all the tools and victory will be ours.

Long live proletarian internationalism!.

Long live Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin!.

“Socialism is built only with the worker-peasant alliance in power and the people in arms.”

Venezuela, March 2011
Hundredth anniversary of the International Day of Working Women

Political Resolution of the XIth of the CC of the PCMLV

After evaluating several plenary sessions during the global situation, we reaffirm our view that we move in successive cyclical crises which are expressed as economic reality, which is deepened especially in the imperialist countries, such as determining component of the general crisis of capitalism, which also of economic base of political and social, creating conditions for moving to a new stage, mixed by wars and revolutions, with high conflict and total decomposition of capitalist society. It is clear that the situation remains tense in the world, continues to deepen the crisis of global capitalism. Riots, demonstrations, war characterize the current moment of world reality.

Expression of this situation is the deepening of the imperialist war against Libya are, we see daily attacks against this country are increasing, and increasingly critical support of the international bourgeois institutions becomes more evident. The bombings are constant and assumptions are civilians who after all end up paying with their lives intemperate attacks of the imperialist forces NATO , Orphans, mothers weeping for their children, this is the scenario that world imperialism has built in this North African country. Unabashedly, the imperialists stole the Libyan people’s money was deposited in European banks, in order to put to the disposal of its interest warmongers. Use the money to strengthen a government coalition made up of reactionary pro-Yankees. About 200 billion dollars of Libya’s international reserves were blocked and placed at the service of imperialism, in addition to this stolen oil, the major facilities and fresh water reserves in this country.

This initially appeared as a political agreement between the imperialist powers to attack Libya, example of this was the position of China and Russia who did not realize their power of veto to prevent the invasion, then the situation worsened, the resistance the Libyan people are maintained over time, setting a problem to be solved by the imperialist powers who doubt the military intervention by land to stop these terrible negative balances and a high political and economic costs.

We understand that this aggression, as well as others made covertly, are part of the imperialist struggle for a new division of the world and are the basis on which to structure the new relationship between world powers, which leads to more wars. The deepening U.S. economic downturn will lead to more conflicts and even wars among the imperialist powers to resolve its economic contradictions.

Another country that is suffering the ravages of imperialist interference, it is Syria, where the imperialists operate in a different format, a little more discreet, are acting from intelligence agencies, on behalf of groups opposed to President Bashar Al Assad. The characteristics of the Syrian government suggests a family relationship in the areas of power, as in the case of the brother of the president who controls one of the divisions of the army and his brother who controls the intelligence services. Some try to locate the essence of this situation on tribal or ethnic differences, trying to hide the fact that regardless of their ethnic peoples seek structural changes that allow them a chance to get a better life. But improving the brevity of life is impossible in a system where the interests of capitalism are the ones that take precedence over the interests of the people and workers in general, it is clear that the intelligence services of imperialism have been mixed in with the riots try to work the ground for possible future interventions.

The acts of sabotage that the governments of Israel and the U.S. made in this country to seek also weaken Iran, Syria partner in oil and industry, hence the conflict to pursue the control of oil reserves and energy, not only this country, if not the entire region.

Importantly, the position taken by China and Russia to Libya with a complicit silence was modified with respect to the situation in Syria, as the worsening social conflict in this country, both exercised their weight as members of the Security Council to make it clearly did not support any intervention in Syria. This is due to a very momentous, Syria offered its territory to transport fuel to other countries, including Russia, making clear that Russia is involved when the conflict is economic interests are at stake with an intervention . Just to mention some good data to say that at the beginning of 2000 the trade exchange between Syria and Russia exceeded 100 million dollars, and for 2005 exceeded $ 300 million, and has continued to increase. Although it is noteworthy that these figures, in general trade of these countries, expressing only a small part of Syria’s debt to Russia, bringing the cumulative three billion dollars. This is complemented by a major military exchange. Syria even has a Russian military base on its territory, which of course must also defend the Russian government when assessing their positions and interests. A similar situation occurs with China in turn is carving the way to deepen political relations with Syria, which promises not only an intensification of efforts to control these countries, and another part of the imperialists, if not also possible contradictions between them.

In Europe, continues to advance the tension, we see the conflict in Greece again takes place in the international news, as workers have returned to the streets to develop their protests against economic measures imposed by international agencies. In Italy, the third largest economy in the euro area is expected to increase the impact of the crisis. France, imperialist country that currently is playing important role in the aggression worn in North Africa as some of the so-called Maghreb countries were colonies of France, so this, now try to regain influence and control as before, on these countries to try to secure their resources.

PCMLV: The government of Venezuela

Will the other counter-insurgency military base?

The world left, revolutionary and social organizations of Latin America had overcome the disappointment, when he again suffered a blow, which forces us as combatants and Marxist Leninist Communist Party back on the subject.

While President Chavez has reaffirmed his supposed “honest” to proceed and said that the murderer will continue working with the Colombian people, the “lord” Manuel Santos, we will continue to fight the revolutionaries fascism treason and bourgeois and imperialist system. As we are sure, the thousands of Colombians continue demonstrating, organizing and fighting in their homeland, with arms in hand to rotten and retrograde structures of a criminal oligarchy that has always had ability to get new and better friends, now in Bolivarian ground.

The delivery of Comrade Joaquín Pérez, and more recently still, the capture of the guerrilla fighter and revolutionary singer Julián Conrado is serious, very serious, we’re all looking, disappointment not to abandon the march, but rather move through over the Social Democrats, that this confirms the thesis of our party on the bourgeois character of this government. We say this for the obvious joy that without the slightest remorse expressed by national authorities, boasting of their efficiency in capturing revolutionaries, guerrilla fighters, communists. Mr. President, let all see that it was a hot potato as Joaquín Pérez, a Venezuelan state policy, and as you can understand why we should worry and sharpens our caution about his reconciliation with fascism. “We’re not under or subject to blackmail from anyone, or the extreme left or the extreme right.” This said, his ministers and yourself, speaking to groups who questioned his performance in the case Becerra however, the government of Santos Is not one of the far-right governments in the world, one of the criminals and murderers in Latin America?

From the Rio Grande to Patagonia, from the innermost village or indigenous community, even the most distant of our continents, rising voices of protest, that you intend to silence, perhaps because this particular “new form” revolutionary action, not is nothing revolutionary nor new.

This approach favors imperialism, which have no qualms at the time of attack in any way to our country. See the example of Libya, despite the reformist and conciliatory attitude of the world imperialism Gaddafi, Libya is undergoing the most ruthless bombing by the imperialist forces of NATO.

The crisis of capitalism in the world is becoming more complex, constantly growing aggressiveness of imperialism, and reform succumb to their threats, I expressed the seventh resolution of our Party in 2010, “the grassroots and criticism the direction of those games, despite the triumphant speech, know this only demonstrates the vacillating character of its leadership and weak to make big decisions in favor of the revolution … bipartisanship, business, parliamentary theater, buying votes and the agreement under the table will be the norm to impose .. ”

PCMLV: Editorial Revolutionary Steel No. 10, July 2011

Internal organ of the Central Committee PCMLV

All the facts confirm our thesis that we approach a general deepening crisis of capitalism. Stage, which like its predecessors, will be mediated by wars and revolutions, by intense class struggle that disrupts everything set and opens the way for a new historical moment.

The great popular movements are becoming part of everyday life, the mass media can no longer keep the workers and peoples are mobilizing to reject the measures they intend to place on their shoulders the weight of the crisis, large concentrations of young workers in general are subjugated peoples actually from North Africa, the Middle East to Europe, America, and in general all the world is a wave that moves, but still led by bourgeois conceptions, but where every day is harder working class and proletarian organizations.

On the other hand wars are spreading, the imperialist offensive shamelessly appropriating oil and other natural resources is becoming more evident. Libya is the current victim, but any country that has raw materials that are useful to the imperialists is exempt from attack. Given that only the organic organization of the proletariat in Marxist-Leninist party for further action within the masses, building the strength in military civic action can actually be deployed in a moment, as a way to stop the invader, and move towards socialist revolution, is the real option with the exploited and oppressed.

In that sense, the threat hangs over Venezuela, imperialism carries out tests and threats of aggression in different ways. The imperialist offensive is serious, to the crisis afflicting the imperialist world choose to follow the guidelines more radical, so-called hawks in the international right (ultra-right sectors) take the reins of the offensive against the peoples of the world with the boot order to force wealth across countries and possession of new lands, oil, water, land of good quality, so that’s the booty they seek, with this aim to raise resources to continue subsidizing their economies. But the capitalist economy yet still battered, only reviving the productive will succeed and it will not happen in the short term, as the medicine being applied by lowering wages, firing workers and closing businesses only leads to depression economy.

PCMLV: Editorial Revolutionary Steel No. 9, May 2011

Internal organ of the Central Committee PCMLV

World events move inexorably towards higher and higher class confrontation scenarios, although not completely visible due to the lack of a more quantitative and qualitative development that directs these actions of the proletariat in different countries. It is clear that the working class is taking firm steps to assume its leading role in the struggles.

In Egypt, before the popular uprising “Cairo”, generated major strikes that were harshly suppressed, but left the fighting spirit and fighting spirit crops. In Tunisia, there were demonstrations and protests, especially the unemployed, who arrived at the end of immolate. In Bolivia, the Bolivian Workers Central, deep-rooted, has forced President Evo Morales to sit at the table to agree levels of pay increase. Similarly, in Europe the major workers’ mobilizations were necessary reference.

Although bourgeois orientation of the reformist leadership that still controls the global trade union movement, the working class struggles to make his way, that leadership oust and replace it with true traitorous leaders of the working class, ie, genuinely revolutionary.

Venezuela is no exception to this situation, nor can abstract from the effects of the general crisis of capitalism. For this reason, begins to become evident in the working class discontent and some confusion at the policy towards workers in any way meet the aspirations and requirements of the Venezuelan working class. We live in a capitalist economy, where profit is the bourgeois individual essence. This profit is based on the forced extraction of surplus value to the working class and also becomes a tool to exploit more workers.

Declaration of the Regional Latin American and Caribbean CIPOML (2011)


International Conference of Parties and Marxist-Leninist Organizations Regional Latin America

POLICY STATEMENT

U.S. imperialism and its European allies: France, England, Spain, Italy, are trying to manipulate the just struggle of the Arab peoples, to channel the indignation of the working masses and the youth towards a change of names, maintaining the economic and social structures and the weight of dependency.

After reviewing the latest events in our countries, in Latin America and the world we declare:

1. The stories told by imperialism claiming that there is a recovery from the crisis are falling apart every day, with the increasing numbers of unemployed, the decrease in production, the worsening of the fiscal deficits and the increase in the foreign debt in most of the countries of Europe, in Japan and the U.S.A., which seriously affect the supposed stability of the capitalist system and sharpening its inherent contradictions. This prolonged crisis that is affecting all the countries of the world shows not only the failure of the recovery policies implemented by imperialism, but also the decay of the system, which is mortally wounded and incapable of guaranteeing the well-being and freedom for which humanity is struggling.

2. The struggle of the working class, the working people, the youth and the peoples is spreading all over the world. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Jordan, Syria, Yemen and other countries of North Africa and Asia Minor are an example of the struggle against the reactionary dictatorships and governments, who with the applause of the bourgeoisies and the imperialist powers have sunk these peoples into the deepest crisis, hunger and the cruelest misery, despite the immense wealth generated by the exploitation of oil, gas and other natural resources. In addition, with the complicity of the UN they resort to military intervention, to the bombing of the civilian population in Libya, using the pretext of the fight against tyranny, all with the aim of guaranteeing the established order and the continuity of all its profits that are the product of colonization and exploitation of these peoples. We completely reject the foreign intervention in Libya. It is up to the Libyan people themselves to resolve the problems of their country. No more military aggression and intervention in Afghanistan and Palestine! We Communists raise the banner of self-determination, sovereignty, well-being and freedom!

3. Active and valiant opposition to imperialism and the reactionary governments is also alive in Europe. In Greece, Turkey, Italy, Spain, Ireland, France, England and other countries of Europe there has been a general rejection of the reduction in wages, the pension reforms, the increase in taxes, privatizations and the reduction of the budgets for health care, education, housing and in general of all the legislative programs by which the crisis is being placed on the shoulders of the working masses. Numerous strikes and mobilizations are showing an important revival of the working class and youth that is again speaking out for unity and the political initiative to confront the recovery policies and to reject the reactionary governments. The great mobilizations of youths that are taking place in Spain and other European countries deserve particular mention, which show the exhaustion of bourgeois democracy and the search for roads to social liberation.

Resolution of the Xth Plenum of the CC


PCMLV. 2011

The events that shook the world confirm conclusively the classics of Marxism-Leninism.

The pauperization of the conditions of the proletariat, the constant mobilization of popular sectors to demand respect for their rights, they are unaware of avoiding a series of achievements attained over the years indicates that the masses feel the weight of the consequences of the general crisis of capitalism falling over his shoulders.

After the many strong mobilizations carried out in various European countries, the imperialists were given the task of proclaiming the crisis was overcome. Imposed despite the rejection of the workers and popular sectors usually a series of economic measures very negative for the exploited and oppressed majority, the protests in this situation are the order of the day, street clashes between law enforcement and lining the popular sectors of the international news scene. Is this a sign of deteriorating relations, the class struggle.

Despite the turbulent situation in the European countries seemed to have come down slightly, the intensity of conflicts had diminished in some way and the water as imperialist spokesmen were taking their cause, the actions of confrontation and rejection of bad social situation experienced by the exploited and oppressed masses to come back strongly again in the streets. Sooner or later the facts have to show that far were the solutions to the crisis of capitalism right now.

Major conflicts erupted in the so-called Maghreb countries, Tunisia’s people took to the streets to demand the resignation of dictator Ben Ali, which had about 24 years in power in that African nation. These reactions generated protest actions in different countries mainly in North Africa. In these nations the people took to the streets demanding the resignation of presidents or monarchs of the same. The proposal of the government to stop these actions was the repression, after watching the protests did not stop resorted to propose reforms, but these proposals did not appease the demands of the people.

Thus, the repression was not delayed by the governments of these countries. Dozens of wounded and dead was the answer they gave these governments when they saw that the street actions amounted to more and more people and spread in days and weeks. On the one hand the most advanced expressed their aspirations for democratic change and popular and revolutionary gains, while other sectors remained in the approach to change governments, planning, ethnic and tribal sometimes exploit these aspirations of the imperialists to support certain sides instead that it can continue to enjoy the support and benefits of their interests.

In Egypt, we saw the people on the streets rejecting Hosni Mubarak, who was 30 years in power, backed by the U.S. Central Intelligence and CIA. The Egyptian government took a policy of deep collaboration with the U.S., performing the role of police in the area with Israel, proyanki exposed positions in different situations, expose this government as one of the most subservient to the imperialist policies .

Finally, Hosni Mubarak was forced to resign, the incessant protests in different cities, the rejection of the offer of reforms and the growing protests despite the crackdown, said the imperialists that this doll now served them more out of power. For this reason, after seeing that the actions of rejection kept ever growing, the imperialists favored the departure of Mubarak. Of course, it was just a formality, since the maneuvers of the imperialists led the new Cabinet remains in the hands of the pro-imperialist, in this specific case, who assume power in Egypt are linked to the intelligence apparatus and military sectors, is responsible for the support of Hosni Mubarak in power, in other words it changed a lot not to change anything.

PCMLV: To Unmask Revisionism is a Necessary Task

In Venezuela as in some other countries of Latin America we are experiencing a bourgeois-democratic process, with patriotic, nationalist governments that say they are “anti-imperialist,” which is only expressed in being anti-Yankee. We communists know that these bourgeois-democratic processes do not go beyond reforms within the framework of capitalism. But we also understand that historically these processes allow us to advance up to a certain point, to prepare ourselves, accumulate and organize the forces for the crucial struggles, to create the necessary conditions that allow us to organize the working class and its allies for the seizure of political power, thus advancing towards the real social revolution, the proletarian revolution.

These bourgeois-democratic processes are being interpreted by the opportunist, revisionist currents, representatives of the government bureaucracy, as the “Transition to 20th Century Socialism,” as the synthesis of the best of all the revolutions carried out in the world, as a “modern expression” of the road to a “new socialism” corresponding to this historic moment. This thesis defends building socialism by the “peaceful road,” without class confrontation, without touching the fundamental element that sustains capitalism and imperialism, private ownership of the means of production. Therefore they proclaim that one has to develop other means of production with new relations of production that “little by little” in a “gradual” way would displace the capitalist relations of production, or that would “hegemonize” over capitalist relations, that is, to create a kind of competition between one “model of social production” as they define it and the model of the bourgeoisie, or even to create a hybrid economy. In this way they try to show the “democratic” character of the State, in which bourgeois exploitation and workers self-management coexist, hoping that this will arouse the good will and sympathy of the pro-imperialist bourgeoisie given the exploitation to which it subjects the working class every day.

Thus, the opportunists and revisionists deny the class struggle, deny that the historical subject of the revolution is the proletariat, in order to put in its place the so-called social movements, which represent people’s power and thus deny the organization of the working class, deny and refuse to accept the fundamental role of the unions and even more, the highest organization of the proletarian class, the vanguard party of the working class. They speak about the working class to give themselves a touch of radical leftism to their revisionism before the masses. This is what the working class is to them; in their speeches they specially emphasize that violent revolutions have passed from history, and have given way to peaceful revolutions that hold up peace among the citizens, that they can achieve peaceful coexistence between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, making the bourgeoisie fulfill some laws that provide certain benefits to the working class so that it can improve its conditions of life and avoid confrontations.

Final Declaration of 15th International Seminarium “Problems of revolution in Latin América”

15th International Seminar: Problems of the Revolution in Latin America

The world is still shaking from the economic crisis of the capitalist system that broke out just over three years ago within U.S. imperialism. Its manifestations and effects spread rapidly, first to the more developed economies and then to the entire planet. The small and brief signs of partial recovery, extolled by the financial groups and economists who are defenders of the system as evidence that the crisis has come to an end, have only confirmed the cyclical nature of the crises, within the framework of the general crisis of capitalism.

The measures tried by the governments and international agencies to overcome the problems have resulted in their intensification. By the logic of the functioning of capitalism the working classes, youth and peoples in general become principal victims of the crisis, but they do not face it with resignation: they resist, they struggle and in important sectors they come out with proposals demanding that the crisis be paid by the capitalists who are responsible for it, not the workers.

Today in various parts of the world the fight for wages, jobs, education, and health care have been joined to the banners of democracy, freedom and other political rights. We are experiencing a period of the rise of the struggle of the masses and its torrent has brought down authoritarian and dictatorial regimes such as Ben Ali (in Tunisia) and Hozni Mubarak (in Egypt) and kept others in check. The questioning of bourgeois institutions is present in these struggles, as in the demands of the “indignant ones” in Spain, in the strikes by workers in Greece and England, and in the mobilizations of the youth in the Americas. It is obvious that the political expressions of the crisis are becoming prominent.

In Latin America the democratic, progressive and left-wing tendency is being affirmed and strengthened in the most advanced sectors. For some time we have seen that there has been a change in the political and social relationship of forces in the region: the neoliberal bourgeoisie and its parties suffered political and electoral defeats in several countries and lost positions in the administrative apparatus of the State; some progressive governments emerged as a result of the search for change by our peoples, of the fights waged against governments openly subservient to foreign capital and to the interests of the local ruling classes.

Without a doubt this new Latin American scenario marked a positive step for the peoples, for the democratic, progressive and left-wing forces because it encouraged the desire for change among the masses, it affirmed their confidence in their ability to overcome a system that has only brought hunger and hopelessness to the workers and peoples. A crucial aspect is that the new situation put the prospect of socialism as an alternative to the decadent capitalist system on the table for discussion.

However, over the years, we have seen the political limits of those governments. Some more rapidly than others have begun to turn to the right, betraying the expectations of the beginning of those new times for those who have always lived under oppression. Free trade agreements with imperialist countries or blocs, anti-popular laws, processes of criminalization of the social protest, handing over of natural resources to foreign capital and neoliberal economic measures have been adopted by almost all those governments that promised change.

Most of the regimes that encouraged the prospect of implementing profound economic, political and social changes, and therefore opened up spaces for the left-wing organizations to advance in the accumulation of revolutionary forces, have become obstacles to the advance of the struggle of the masses, to the perspective of the revolution and socialism; they are, in fact, governments that support the capitalist system.

The turn to the right taking place in the majority of those governments, in spite of the expectations of the ruling classes and imperialism, has not led to discouragement or frustration among the peoples. The desire for change is still present; it is shown in the protests against unemployment, for education, for the land, for water, against taxes, for democracy, because their voice is heard when it is time to make decisions in the spheres of government.

The prospect of the victory of the revolution and socialism is being maintained, it does not depend on what opportunism, reformism or any bourgeois pseudo left-wing faction does; it is in the hands of the workers and peoples, of the genuinely revolutionary forces. For the victory of the revolution, it is essential to utilize and combine all forms of struggle, according to the features present in each of the countries.

Now, in order to put an end to the contradiction that defines the nature of the epoch in which we live, the contradiction between labor and capital, we cannot ignore the fight against the policy that social-democracy in power carries out in the name of social change but for the benefit of the ruling classes and imperialist financial capital.

For the advance of the revolutionary struggle it is necessary to remove the nefarious bourgeois ideological influence in its different forms in the movement of the workers, the youth, women and the popular movement in general; to that end we must combine the momentum of the fight of the masses for their material demands and political rights with the ideological debate to expose the pro-capitalist character embodied in these proposals. The unmasking of opportunism and social democracy is part of the ideological struggle that we revolutionaries raise against capitalism and its defenders in general.

The organizations of the revolutionary left are the most advanced sector of the democratic, progressive and left-wing tendency, their responsibility is to work to ensure that the whole tendency and the peoples in general see and understand the political limits that the progressive governments have and the nature of those of a neoliberal character and above all, to ensure that they take up the banners and program of a genuine revolution that leads to socialism.

In this process, the policy of unity with the sectors and forces involved in the defense of the aspirations and rights of workers and peoples and to defend the sovereign interests of the country is essential.

Moreover, the unity must go beyond national borders, since, while the revolution is a process that must be implemented in each country, in essence it is an international movement. It is our commitment to form a great anti-imperialist front of the peoples, which is expressed in specific struggles and actions. The active solidarity with all those peoples who are fighting for social and national liberation and independence is part of our work. Today we express our support for the struggle of the Palestinian people against criminal Israeli Zionism, to the people of Puerto Rico in their struggle for independence; we reject the imperialist blockade established for five decades against Cuba and the presence of occupation troops in Haiti; we condemn all acts of political and military aggression and intervention by the imperialist powers against the peoples.

With our collective effort we have arrived at the 15th International Seminar that, year after year, has followed-up on the fundamental problems that circumstances impose on the revolutionary organizations. We reaffirm the importance of such events that allow us to sum up and share experiences; therefore we commit ourselves to continue this work and to publicize the agreements and resolutions made on this occasion. We call for a similar event next year.
